At Norwegian banking giant DNB’s new 45,000-square-foot offices at 30 Hudson Yards, M Moser is helming a project that “isn’t just about commercial interiors—its about cultural transformation,” said Chris Swartout, the director of the firm’s 27-person New York office. With DNB seeking to emphasize its technological operations and reposition itself as “a technology company with a banking license,” M Moser has sought to facilitate that transition with a more tech-friendly buildout, he said. Nearby, M Moser is also helming the design hedge fund Point72 Asset Management’s new 175,000-square-foot offices at 55 Hudson Yards.

The idea of experience was also taken into consideration for Gensler’s workplace designs for the Boston Consulting Group.

Gensler, founded in 1965, helped boost collaboration for the firm’s employees in its roughly 193,000-square-foot space on the 42nd through 47th floors of 10 Hudson Yards through what Giannetti called “casual collisions.”

These are the designers we look to again and again. Each is distinctive—what unites them is their excellence. Here are the 2018 ELLE Decor A-List designers.

A+I has attracted numerous other tech and media clients including Tumblr, iHeartMedia and Horizon Media—the latter having called on the interior design firm several times, most recently last year, as it has expanded its footprint at 75 Varick Street in Hudson Square. And in one of the biggest items on the firm’s docket, the partnership of Hines, Norges Bank and Trinity Church tapped A+I to handle design and renovation work at six of the 11 buildings comprising the landlords’ expansive Hudson Square office portfolio.

The company, founded in 1979, certainly has the staff to cope with such a workload, with more than 200 people housed in its Penn Plaza offices. While workplace interiors account for more than half of TPG’s business, the firm also has an established retail interiors practice and is growing its footprint in the realms of hospitality and health care.

Besides the Nike offcies, STUDIOS has worked on the renovation of the lobby at 1500 Broadway, the revamp of 150 Fifth Avenue, and Time Inc.’s new headquarters at 225 Liberty Street. 

ArborCrowd’s Adam Kaufman on the Next Evolution of Multifamily Crowdfunding By Cathy Cunningham

Brooklyn-raised Ellie Cullman (her family owns the famous Peter Luger steakhouse) holds an Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award from the New York School of Interior Design and founded the storied design firm known for its fashion-forward, modern look — catalogued in the design book, From Classic to Contemporary.

India Mahdavi has a lot in common with Henri Matisse. Like a fauvist, the Paris-based designer and architect uses rich, complementary colors in both her commercial and residential projects to immediately elicit a layered—mostly giddy—response from visitors. She creates worlds that are uncanny: they feel familiar, but are at the same time completely alien. Recently, she created collections for Pierre Frey and Bisazza and opened the much-feted Ladurée salon de thé in Tokyo.

The firm, founded in 2003, is also designing the interiors for Dock 72, the 17-story, 675,000-square-foot office building being developed by Rudin Development and Boston Properties at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. WeWork is anchoring the project with 222,000 square feet of shared workspace, and Fogarty Finger is designing the lobby and 35,000 square feet of amenities that will be programmed by the coworking giant, including food hall, fitness center, open lawn with games, outdoor basketball court and conference center.

“We designed a space that really embodies their culture,” said Spector Group Principal Scott Spector. “Having that large café lounge space gives them the flexibility they need for an all-hands meeting and acts as a social and collaboration zone,” added Lauren Gardner, Spector Group’s marketing director.

Alyssa Kapito is based in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan. Style: A fresh take on the classics with a great appreciation of antiques and art. Recent projects: a full restoration of a historic Hamptons estate; a family home in Beverly Hills; a beach house in Bellport Long Island and a landmarked townhouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Bunny Williams is all about classic comfort, an informed eye, and a bit of fun. In her rooms, fine European antiques meet mirrored walls and gutsy artwork. She uses intense colors and delicate patterns with equal panache.

For our second annual interior design list, we queried top architecture firms and landlords to see who they trusted to handle the interiors for their top developments. Then we reached out to prominent commercial interior design firms and asked how many square feet they designed last year, the value of their projects and what they consider their noteworthy work from 2017. We tried to look beyond the numbers—which were the basis of our first list, published in October 2016—and consider who was doing the most interesting and exciting work. (Lists like these, especially when considering firms whose work is largely aesthetic, include a number of judgment calls.)

“We balance modern, machined elements with warm, textured, historical ones often weaving a story or dialogue of periods,” says Hayes of his New York-based design firm. Born in Louisiana, Hayes has curated homes for Marc Jacobs and Leonard Lauder and Evelyn Lauder and previously practiced as a landscape architect.

Sibling duo Pamela Shamshiri and Ramin Shamshiri struck out on their own from Commune to great success in 2016. Their star-studded client list includes Seth Rogan and Lauren Rogan, Anne Hathaway & Adam Shulman, and Sophia Amoroso of Girlboss. “Our look is narrative and experience driven so it’s always changing based on the place, architecture, client, and historical context.”

New York City-basd Shawn Henderson is known for his interiors that are serene as they are sophisticated. His past projects have included homes for Will Ferrell and director Tate Taylor.

So Ted Moudis created a space that emphasizes curved lines by using dark and white exposed and dropped ceilings and on the floors through a contrast between wooden and polished surfaces.

Los Angeles and Paris-based Timothy Corrigan knows a thing or two about European elegance given that he’s owned has owned three historic castles and penned, An Invitation to Château du Grand-Lucé about one’s renovation. The jet-setting decorator tends to a clientele that includes Madonna and an array of Middle Eastern royals.

Notable recent projects include investment firm Winton Capital Management’s 35,000-square-foot duplex office at the top of 315 Park Avenue South, at which MKDA sought to couple a loft-like, industrial aesthetic with a sheen worthy of a financial services firm. MKDA also handled major law firm Hodgson Russ’ new 20,000-square-foot space at 605 Third Avenue, and for another legal client—personal injury firm Morgan & Morgan—designed an uncharacteristically funky, 17,000-square-foot outpost in Sunset Park.

At 601 Lexington Avenue, M Moser, which has been around for over 37 years, last year finished a buildout of a new 37,000-square-foot office for Blackstone Group’s Innovations technology division that blended a younger, tech-oriented feel with more refined, corporate elements. And the firm also handled work for advertising giant Publicis Groupe’s Prodigious division, which took 15,000 square feet in Sunset Park’s Industry City complex; that project sought to utilize the space’s “amazing views” of Manhattan in the creation of a “best-in-class creative agency environment.”

A Pittsburgh-born designer who moved to NYC and trained under designer Philippe Starck, Kelly Behun is known for highly bespoke creative process and her line of artistic, thoughtful furniture pieces and home accessories.

New York and Palm Beach designer Ashley Whittaker describes her clients as “bi-coastal bachelors to Upper East Side Families and everyone in between.” Famous for her bright use of color and pattern, Whittaker describes her style as youthful, eclectic and traditional all at once.

At the Dime Savings Bank in South Williamsburg, Fogarty is revamping the neo-classical bank building into retail or office space and designing a 22-story mixed-use building next door. Known as “The Dime,” the finished complex at 263 South 5th Street will hold 50,000 square feet of retail, 100,000 square feet of office space and 177 rental units.

Trading his time between New York and San Francisco, Ken Fulk’s designs are bold, evocative, and inventive — and attract the clients to match, such as Pharrell. In the public sphere, you might have encountered his work at one of the many trendy Major Food Group bars and restaurants he’s decorated.

“A lot of companies are going through digital and cultural transformations and trying to become agile,” he noted. “We’re adjusting our capacities in order to match that.”—R.M.

So Studios added a 50-by-84-foot basketball court, separated from the rest of the office by a chain link fence, to the double-height first floor. Nike plans to let local leagues and high school teams use the court, but it also doubles as a large space for full staff meetings, with bleachers that can seat 415 people. Much of the company’s six-floor, 150,000-square-foot office is open, featuring a variety of flexible workspaces, like booths, lounges, conference rooms and a library. Roaming workers can even hang out or have meetings in an orange Volkswagen minibus parked on one floor—a tribute to Nike CEO Phil Knight, who got his start in the sneaker business by selling shoes out of his car during high school track meets.

There SOM, founded in 1936, designed a new three-level town hall space at the base of buildings that connects the structures, which Citigroup owns and together combine for 2.6 million square feet. In that common area there is an atrium, several dining venues, a newsstand, coffee bar, conference center and meeting rooms. The new headquarters is expected to be completed in 2020.

“There’s a warmth to the space that is far above your typical banking client,” Spector told CO in January. “It’s not heavy white marble; it’s not repetitive work stations all over the place…This is more refined.”—R.B.R.

New York City–based interior designer Sara Gilbane describes her style as cheerful and comfortable design infused with color, pattern, and whimsy. Her signature is to combine antiques with a client’s prized possessions and an bright, welcoming hues.

As employers across all industries have come to place heightened importance on their work environments as a means of productivity, talent attraction and talent retention, that vision has proven prescient. In the process, A+I has built an impressive roster of clients drawn to the firm’s emphasis on crafting not just a design, but a cohesive strategy for what the space is seeking to achieve.

And to help the advertisers generate ideas, Ted Moudis crafted a “sky lounge,” which has white furniture and walls covered with clouds and blue skies to make employees feel as though they are “in the clouds,” said Jacqueline Barr, the design principal of the firm.

It’s not the only project where SOM has had to help the client create a sense of community. In fact, an even larger amenity space was crafted at Citigroup’s new headquarters at 388 and 390 Greenwich Street.

Founded in 1959, MKDA now has three offices, one each in New York, Stamford, Conn. and Miami—and while the 12-member Miami studio has begun to dabble in base building work, it is the 40-member New York City office, entirely devoted to commercial interiors, that continues to bring home the bacon. Since the beginning of last year, MKDA says that it has more than 320 New York City projects either completed or in the works, and the firm is well-established in the city as one of the go-to outfits for both landlords and tenants on the hunt for new digs.

Finger noted that high-end financial firms and startups that were willing to pay top dollar for hip office space are searching for a very particular, modern look. Finger pointed to his firm’s work designing the prebuilt spaces at 412 West 15th Street as an example.

“We’re fighting for the right clients, not just [any] clients. Clients who resonate with [A+I’s approach] to solve larger, more structural problems in their organization find us,” Folger said.—Rey Mashayekhi

Kelly Wearstler’s global luxury lifestyle brand is marked by its distinctive designs and sophisticated soulful character. Wearstler’s signature style juxtaposes raw with refined, melds sophistication and spirited spontaneity, and brings together diverse periods of furniture. Her portfolio includes luxury hotels and grand residences from Beverly Hills to the Caribbean, and throughout the rest of the world.

With 15 offices around the world, Hong Kong-based M Moser Associates is well-established as a major global and national player in the realm of workplace design, but the firm has heightened its profile in New York in recent years via a number of projects for big-name companies at some of the city’s marquee properties.

As for Uber, Finger and his partners are revamping the offices of the ridesharing company’s engineering group at 1400 Broadway and “infusing a hospitality feel” into the space, a Fogarty Finger spokeswoman said.

Los Angeles-based Peter Dunham calls his style “sophisticated casual.” He started his design company in L.A. in 1998 after a childhood in France and college in England, and design lovers flock to his Hollywood at Home to buy his fabric and wallpaper collection. His fans and past clients include Jennifer Garner, Steve Tisch, and Drew Barrymore, with projects restoring landmark homes, like an 1963 Horace Gifford house on Fire Island.

“It’s an unusual building, because it’s 50 percent commercial and 50 percent residential,” said Robert Finger, one of the firm’s founders. “Our office reflects that. We do a significant amount of multifamily in addition to our commercial work. I think that had a lot to do with why were awarded that job. Our firm is equally focused on architecture and interiors.”

That approach has yielded clients including Squarespace, which tapped A+I to design its 98,000-square-foot multilevel headquarters at 8 Clarkson Street in Greenwich Village. A+I spent three months devising a workplace strategy for the online firm, emerging with a sophisticated design that sought to match Squarespace’s aesthetic and provide multifunctional spaces blending office and hospitality elements. (A+I is helming a two-floor expansion for Squarespace at the building, Folger and Zizmor said.)

The 300-person firm, founded in 1985, also took on an unusual preservation project last year. Durst Organization hired Studios to revamp the former Condé Nast cafeteria at 4 Times Square, which was Frank Gehry’s first New York City project, while maintaining much of the floor’s original, iconic design. The cafeteria is famous for its curved-glass partitions, round leather booths and undulating blue-gray titanium walls. Durst wanted to take the space from an amenity created for one tenant to one that the whole building could use. The $35 million renovation will transform the eating area into a tenant-only food hall and add a 20,000-square-foot meeting space, the latter run by Convene, to the rest of the floor.

“It’s been wonderful for us to work on the next generation of that important building,” Apking said. “We are looking at all kinds of programmatic pieces that we can weave into [the Waldorf] that will set it up for the next generation.”—L.L.G.

Outside of the office sector, Ted Moudis created a 7,000-square-foot gym for Park Tower Group last year at its 37-story building at 535 Madison Avenue. The tenant-only gym features a luxe, Equinox-like fitness center with concierge service, LED lights, high-end equipment and a unisex changing area with wooden lockers.—L.L.G.

For Manhattan Condo Developers in a Correcting Market, the Price Must Be Right

Boston Consulting’s office, which was completed a year ago, also provides everyone with a sit-stand desk and some have treadmill workstations. And when a guest or client gives her name at the security desk and takes the elevator up, a staff member is there to greet her.

For the offices of Rauxa, the country’s largest women-owned advertising agency, Spector took advantage of double-height floors to create large meeting spaces with stadium-style seating. Spector also built out a large café and lounge for big company meetings.

Spector recently wrapped up work on the offices of Insider Inc., the parent company that owns news website Business Insider. The design group created graphics based on audience data from BI articles that had gone viral and applied them to the glass walls of the conference rooms and phone rooms. Insider just moved into its new 88,000-square-foot space on the eighth and ninth floors of One Liberty Plaza last month.

A leading member of the Los Angeles design community, Madeline Stuart’s wide-ranging clientele comes from the entertainment industry and the world of business and finance. Her projects reflect a collaborative relationship between architecture and furniture, function and form, client and designer. The firm recently completed a four-year project that involved a comprehensive restoration and redesign of a historic property in La Jolla, California.

Meanwhile, the firm is also presently busy with Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center parent company Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment’s new Industry City corporate offices, which will span a reported 70,000 square feet, and is handling Alaska Airlines’ new lounge at John F. Kennedy International Airport—which TPG said will feature a design emblematic of a national rebranding for the airline in the wake of its recent acquisition of Virgin America.

Update: A previous version of this entry identified the total square footage of Gensler’s New York City interior design projects as 8.4 million. That number, which was provided by the firm, was inaccurate, according to Gensler.

Mario Buatta is the “Prince of Chintz” and one of America’s most iconic designers — two titles he accepts happily.

Former set designer Ariel Ashe and architect Reinaldo Leandro’s NYC firm Ashe + Leandro mixes contemporary luxury and natural materials to create spaces that feel open and timeless. Past projects include work for Liev Schreiber and Seth Meyers, who is the husband of Ashe’s sister.

SOM is also designing the renovation of the famed Waldorf Astoria hotel. The firm has been focusing on revitalizing historical elements of the hotel, including entrance ways, the lobby, meeting spaces, dining spaces and the historical ballroom.

For Michael Kleinberg, the president of family-owned architecture and interior design firm MKDA, it’s all about relationships. “If a client wants to see me at 9 p.m. tonight, I’ll see them, because that’s what you do for a client, and they’ll remember it,” he said. “It’s a tough industry, but the value is when you see you have satisfied clients, and you have a project that looks good and leads to other projects.”

Trained at Sotheby’s in London, NYC-based Richard McGeehan specializes in 19th and 20th century decorative arts and calls his style “intelligent eclecticism.” In addition to many museum clients, he’s designed homes for Robert Duffy of Marc Jacobs and the official residences of a UN ambassador and the governor’s mansions for the states of New Jersey and Missouri.

“The challenge was to reprogram it while respecting the original design, because it’s a brilliant piece,” said Studios Principal Robert Clemens. “Some of the panels may have been modified or relocated, but [we tried] to preserve as much of the original intent as possible. It’s just been slightly modified a little bit.”—R.B.R.

The firm has done work for LinkedIn at its New York headquarters at the Empire State Building, where it completed a massive, full-floor café as well as an amenity and studio space that Swartout said serves as “the social hub and connective tissue of all the space that LinkedIn has in the building.”

The Milan-based duo of Roberto Peregalli and Laura Sartori Rimini, otherwise known as Studio Peregalli, specializes in baronial rooms that are steeped in history without being tied to any particular period. They fashion dramatic spaces that interpret the past without living in it, working with salvaged fragments and highly skilled artisans. The firm’s American projects include a Manhattan apartment for style arbiter Hamish Bowles, and a Gramercy Park townhouse for artists Rachel Feinstein and John Currin.

Hudson’s Bay Company, which is the parent company of Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor and namesake Hudson’s Bay, had a problem: how to make the members of its various brands feel like they are part of one team.

“ ‘To create moments that matter,’ that’s what they do for their clients,” Barr said referring to the client’s motto. “So we thought about how do we create moments that matter. We came up with when you are thinking of ideas, your head’s in the clouds.”

New York and Los Angles-based Eric Hughes clients include Sarah Jessica Parker & Matthew Broderick, Andy Cohen, Katie Couric, Hank Azaria, Lauren Graham. Cohen’s Manhattan home by Hughes — who likes to create “relaxed, eclectic, elegant residences” — is pictured here.

Whether they are designing Uber’s offices, renovating and converting the landmarked Waldorf Astoria hotel, or building out Citigroup’s world headquarters, we tried to include firms working on a diverse roster of projects, big and small.—Rebecca Baird-Remba

“It creates this common place—a heart—that connects them together,” said Stephen Apking, the interior design partner at SOM.

The former Million Dollar Decorators star Kathryn M. Ireland describes her style as “California coastal meets European chic,” and the result is an elevated boho look that’s attracted clients, such as Julia Louis Dreyfus and Drew Barrymore. The Santa Monica-based designer’s charm and signature flair also shines through in her popular textiles line.

For someone in his early 30s, Ryan Korban has made quite a name for himself. His strong point of view and a signature aesthetic—sleek, marbly interiors, geometric forms and muted color palette—is exemplified in a handful of stunning retail projects for the likes of Aquazzura, Balenciaga, and Alexander Wang. (Would calling him the successor to Peter Marino be hyperbolic? We don’t think so.) Korban is currently working on his first major residential development at 40 Bleecker, in New York City.

Other than relationships, Kleinberg said the key to making it in the cutthroat world of commercial interior design is “staying power.”

And it’s not just sheer volume of work that means TPG is a mainstay on this list—the firm is doing major projects for established companies at premier properties across the city.

Another project for which Ted Moudis put in its clients branding last year was the 47,000-square-foot offices for AlphaSights at 350 Madison Avenue between East 44th and East 45th Streets. The client, which links professionals and companies with industry experts and data around the globe, uses lines in its branding online to reflect connections.

In the Meatpacking office building on West 15th Street, that more “mature aesthetic” meant warmer light, black wood walls with built-in shelves, black kitchen tiles, marble counters and light wooden accents and furniture. The building’s developer and landlord, Rockpoint Group, has already inked five leases for office tenants there, and all but one has asked for office designs in the style of the prebuilt floors, Finger said.—R.B.R.

“Everything, for us, is for the long term; there are always new competitors popping up here and there, while other guys get bought out and sold,” he noted. “We’re lucky enough to have the third generation starting in the business.” Indeed, Kleinberg’s son is currently a student at the University of Miami’s School of Architecture—and while he said he hopes he starts his career at another firm to cut his teeth in the field, it would appear MKDA is destined to remain a family business.—R.M.

In addition to recent projects like the Associated Press’ new 170,000-square-foot headquarters at Brookfield Place and financial technology firm NEX Group’s new 82,000-square-foot digs at 4 Times Square, TPG is at work designing MacMillan Publishers’ sprawling 120,000-square-foot offices at 120 Broadway in the Financial District and insurer Argo Group’s new 48,000-square-foot location at 413 West 14th Street in the Meatpacking District.

“We believe in creating a comprehensive experience, as opposed to just a physical environment,” Zizmor said, while Folger noted that the 72-person firm thinks of itself “as a research company that is leveraging architecture to create brands and values for our clients.”

New York City-based Peter Marino is known for his commercial and retail designs as much as he is residential, and he has worked to redefine modern luxury worldwide with clients including Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Bulgari.

To that end, Gensler incorporated elements such as a tunnel entrance (like entering a football stadium), stands for live-game viewing on big screens, locker rooms instead of dressing rooms and track and field areas so consumers testing shoes can better imagine using the products.

New York City-based Jeff Fields is the partner of fellow A-List designer Joe Nahem. Their past clients include Robert Downey Jr.

In an admittedly hyper-competitive market for commercial interior design, Swartout said M Moser’s competitive advantage comes in its emphasis on “end-to-end services” that address every aspect of conceptualizing, designing, engineering and constructing a space, as well as its ability to adapt to continuously evolving corporate trends.

In Multifamily Finance, Fannie and Freddie Are Still the Elephant in the Room

Take, for example, its design of advertising giant Universal McCann’s (UM) roughly 95,000-square-foot offices at 100 West 33rd Street in Herald Square. Since one of the marketer’s clients is Coca-Cola, Ted Moudis designers crafted a bar with a bright red-and-white color scheme and Coke vending machines.

The answer? Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, commonly known as SOM, designed a social meeting space in the core of its new 350,000-square-foot offices at Brookfield Place. SOM placed a coffee bar, meeting areas and conference rooms into a long corridor at the center of the space that was only previously used as an area just the restrooms, elevators and staircases for past tenants. This way, ultimately all workers from all walks of the company with meet in the center of the space.

“They handle taking you to where you are going or if you are expected by someone internally they make sure that that [employee] meets with you,” Giannetti said. “You are not greeted by a traditional reception desk. It is a very personalized experience.”

With a style that’s unrestrained yet very refined, we design homes and commercial spaces that are the visual stories of the people living or working there. KCD’s interiors are bold statements balanced by quiet details, the dark accents in a white room, the well-defined edge that contains a surprise of color.

Another one of Spector Group’s major projects last year was the new office for the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York. The bank moved up a floor and expanded to 64,000 square feet from 42,000 square feet in its longtime home at 101 Park Avenue. To make the new office feel warm, Spector outfitted the furniture, ceilings, and stairways in a combination of walnut wood and brushed bronze.

This means employees may bump into each other thanks to multi-purpose areas that can be used as social or workspace, and a coffee bar area that is used as a popular workspace. Also, the office has an internal staircase that connects all of the company’s floors in the building, again allowing workers to run into each other each while traversing floors.

“It was designed with a stadium concept and thinking about the athlete’s journey in mind,” said Rocco Giannetti, a principal and co-managing director of Gensler’s New York office.

Juan Montoya was born in Colombia and moved to New York to attend Parsons School of Design after studying architecture in Bogotá. He has enough design world accolades to fill a very chic room and is known for paying special attention to his mix of textures, volumes, shadows and scale.

“When you’re going after someone who wants to pay $200 a square foot, they are probably international, they’re investment firms,” he said. “How do you attract those? They’re people that are looking to spend a lot of money and they’re probably not looking for the same aesthetic that a tech firm on Park Avenue is looking for. How does that aesthetic mature? How do you mature from Ping-Pong tables and kegs?”

Brookyln-based Billy Cotton has designed for artist Cindy Sherman and Carol Bove.

Based in New York City and Los Angeles, the work of Kati Curtis Design highlights the sophistication of New York with the flavor, and just a twist, of California.

“Many design firms see clients as an obstacle,” said David Koren, TPG’s executive director of marketing and communications. “ ‘We could do really good work if it weren’t for the clients.’ That’s how a lot of firms and architects think, and that’s not how this firm thinks at all. It’s not about the designers’ egos; it’s about serving the clients’ business objectives.”—R.M.

New York-based TPG Architecture continues to be one of the most prolific firms dealing in commercial interiors in the city, reporting more than 1,000 projects completed or ongoing since the start of last year.

Although exterior architecture often grabs headlines, it’s the interior design that usually makes or breaks a project. With that in mind, Commercial Observer has ranked New York City’s best and most interesting architecture firms that do commercial interior design work.

“The tenant has to remember something about a building, and that’s up to us,” he said. “What can you come out with that differentiates this building as 44 Wall?”

Fogarty Finger is handling the exterior and interior design for several prominent New York City projects, including the redevelopment of the Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh, Dock 72 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and Uber’s second New York City office near Bryant Park.

More than anyone, Nate Berkus is the public face of contemporary design. A TV personality who designs products for Target, he’s also an accomplished and sophisticated interior designer. His own predilections tend toward neutral palettes; natural materials like leather, linen, and wicker; and objects made by hand. He is currently working on a television project with his husband Jeremiah Brent.

For Manhattan Condo Developers in a Correcting Market, the Price Must Be Right By Rey Mashayekhi

Having studied together at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Brad Zizmor and Dag Folger started A+I (Architecture Plus Information) in 1996 with the idea of “bringing real architectural thinking to the workplace,” Zizmor told CO. “Little did we know it would be such a hot topic 20 years later.”

A fourth-generation Californian by way of the Bay Area, Nathan Turner wrote the book on the state’s aesthetic, called I Love California, as well as a book on classic American Style. The Los Angeles-based designer counts A-list stars, including Mindy Kaling and Armie and Elizabeth Hammer, among his clients.

Ted Moudis Associates is pretty good at finding creative ways to implement its client’s branding into the their spaces.

Adidas’ flagship store at 565 Fifth Avenue makes for a great example. The 45,000-square-foot space was created so that customers felt more than they were just shopping.

New York–based designer Bennett Leifer describes his style in four words: Timeless, livable, elegant and artful. He has primarily worked with private families in New York, Los Angeles, Aspen, and the Hamptons. Notable projects include model residences for 18 Gramercy Park South, Norman Foster’s 50 United Nations Plaza, and 100 Barclay.

Because UM works with many liquor companies, Ted Moudis, founded in 1990, threw in a speakeasy, with a small door entrance, dark walls and a secret room (check behind the painting).

Rauxa’s space also incorporates graffiti murals that were painted by employees in its previous offices. The murals were photographed and reimagined, creating rhythmic patterns connecting both floors of the firm’s 50,000-square-foot office at 225 Liberty Street.

“This idea of creating a common culture and bringing people together are what [clients want],” Apking said.

At 52 years old, Spector Group remains one of the most prolific commercial interior design firms in the city, competing against heavy hitters with much larger staffs, like SOM and Gensler. Whether it’s a bank, a startup office, the entrance to Brookfield Place, or a medical office, the firm takes a sleek, modern and community-minded approach to each space it tackles.

A world-renowned interior designer, Vicente Wolf has been a leader in the Manhattan design industry for over 35 years. From the spacious light-filled loft in New York City where his company is headquartered, Wolf and his team build on his passion for design that’s guided by integrity and simplicity. Wolf has published four design books, including this year’s “The Four Elements of Design: Interiors Inspired By Earth, Water, Air and Fire.” His portfolio includes the MGM hotel in Las Vegas and the Wynn Hotel in Macau, China.

Another recent project Gensler designed was One Soho Square, which combined the adjacent 161 Avenue of the Americas and 233 Spring Street into one tower of 768,000 square feet held by a new core. It will be completed in the spring and comes with a new three-level glassy penthouse.—Liam LaGuerre

On the landlord front, the interior design firm recently did prebuilts at Equity Office’s 44 Wall Street in the Financial District. At that property and others that MKDA works on for property owners, Kleinberg said the emphasis is on designing something that gives the building a unique sense of place.

When Nike tapped Studios Architecture to design its Midtown office, the shoemaker asked the designers to bring the feel of the city into a glassy, newly constructed highrise at 855 Avenue of the Americas.
